The two RV Gypsies
at Spirits of Iron Sculpture Park
near Mt. Rainier National Park
July 18, 2013

The Recycled Spirits of Iron Sculpture Park is located along State Route 706 on the way to Mt. Rainier National Park, 3 miles east of Elbe, Washington. The two RV Gypsies highly recommend everyone stop at this sculpture park on their way to Mt. Rainier. (It closes in October for the winter.) This park has been featured in the Disney movie "America's Heart and Soul" and "Recycled Spirits of Iron" and on You Tube - sponsored by the Mt. Rainier Visitor Association.

The fabulous metal horse sculpture below has its butt made out of horseshoes - see the close-up photo of the horseshoe butt in the photo to the right of the below horse. It is amazing the items used to make these fabulous sculptures. Dan Klennert surely is an amazing artist/sculptor with a great imagination.

Walking beside the work shed, the two RV Gypsies saw a small RV - and just look what was in the window of that RV. What a great sense of humor!

The two RV Gypsies walked into the backyard and found lots more interesting sculptures.

about Dan Klennert

The talented, imaginative artist, Dan Klennert, and his gal were sitting on the porch outside the gift shop. The two RV Gypsies stopped to talk to him and learned that he has been doing this creative work for 41 years. He was intelligent, friendly, and fun to talk with. Read the photo above for more details about this amazing artist. And remember to stop here, browse, and shop!
